In The Sign of Four, the great detective, Sherlock Holmes, famously says: “… when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth …”.
Eliminate the Impossible collects six canonical tales in which Holmes and Watson encounter mummies, angels, phantoms, invisible assassins, and arcane machines … or so it might appear to those without a carefully stocked brain attic.
From Medieval London, to the snow-capped mountains Turkey, from dusty Admiralty vaults, to the glitz and glamour of the Orient Express, from the days of fledgling friendship, to the backdrop of World War I, this new collection invites you to celebrate deduction, forensic science, and logic … and Eliminate the Impossible.
Six stories from various volumes of The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories.
